Master Bedroom Makeover

So I've been working on this project since September, but I'm happy to say it's finally done!

I painted our master bedroom years ago, and I just chose these colors off of a paint sample book. I never REALLY loved the colors. And I just got more and more tired of it as time went on. After a while, I couldn't stand it. Especially after looking on Pinterest, and getting ideas and inspiration as to what I could do to give our room a facelift.

So here are the "before" pictures....

Kevin helped me paint the room one weekend. I chose a color that was pretty neutral, and a lot brighter than that red paint we had. It's a mix between tan and gray. I LOVE it!!

I wanted to do something with our boring bay window. I thought window treatments would be fun, but I didn't know where to start. I looked on Pinterest, and found my bay window inspiration! It's hard to find bay window curtain rods. So I just found a tutorial on a DIY rod, using a $2 piece of electrical conduit. Kevin, (being an electrician), already has the bender. So he bent it to fit the window.

Then we used this to spray paint it....

We just bought 3 brackets, and 2 end pieces to give it a finished look....

This is the window before.....BORING!

And after. Much better! The curtains are voile, and I bought them at Kohl's. I've also seen them in the Big Lots ad for $5. They are sheer and bright, and I love them!

I have an idea of what I want to put over the headboard, but it's not done yet. I'll have to post pics when it is.

I bought some fabric at JoAnn's for 50% off, and made these pillows to add a little bit of color to the room.

Overall, we spent the most on all of the new bedding. We bought a memory foam mattress pad topper at Costco, a Duvet to cover our down comfortor, shams for the pillows, new sheets and blankets, and a body pillow.

I also spray painted some of the picture frames black.

Now I LOVE to go in my room and just relax! I think it's so much more inviting than it was before.

And I will soon be posting about our next project, the MUD ROOM, which is almost finished. :)
